Key facts

We're working with partners on the £113m Gateways to Oldham project which will transform areas and create hundreds of new and refurbished homes
Apply for housing in Oldham
A total of 1,684 homes are owned and managed in Oldham. We have a regional office in Union Street in the town centre and our community development initiatives in the area are wide-ranging, including support for everyone from junior sports clubs to crown green bowlers.

Flagship developments include Selwyn Street at Coppice – which pioneered the use of wind turbines – and Devon Street and Norfolk Street in Werneth, providing more much-needed family housing.

Great Places’ supported housing in the town includes two schemes for young people and a development for adults with various needs. In 2012 we began transformational work with the communities of Primrose Bank and Crossley, as part of the £113m Gateway to Oldham Inspiral Consortium, an exciting  and innovative new venture for us.
